NCsoft has announced that the game servers will be brought down tomorrow morning at 4:30AM PDT for an eight hour maintenance to deploy the hotly anticipated version 1.9 update to live servers.
Aion producers Chris "Kinslon" Hager and Lani Blazier are joined by Community Manager Andrew "Tamat" Beegle to discuss the features coming to Aion in version 1.9, which is currently on test servers and scheduled to go live next week.
With version 1.9 hitting test servers tomorrow, Aion players are already looking ahead to version 2.0 which has been on the Korean public test servers for a little while now. Aion version 2.0, now known as "Assault on Balaurea" will feature eight new instances, pets with a variety of functions ranging from storing items to assisting in crafting or even acting as guardians, several zones set within the lands of Balaurea, a raise in level cap to 55, new flight mechanics, and more!
Chris "Kinslon" Hager has delivered his May Community Address letter where he discusses the upcoming 1.9 patch, the status of the free server transfer service, the 2.0 update, and even server merges.
Who's ready for another Double XP weekend? Iron Man 2 can wait, gotta make the levels! Beginning tonight at 8PM EST, Aion players can enjoy double experience through the weekend, ending on Monday, May 10th at 8AM EST.
As promised, NCsoft has released an initial set of translated Aion version 2.0 patch notes from the 2.0 build currently in testing on the Korean public test servers.
NCsoft has a one-two punch of Aion news for you all. The first, is the announcement that the public test server for the North American Aion community is now live. The second bit of news, is that version 2.0 of Aion has hit test servers over in Korea, and we're told that patch notes are forthcoming. The patch notes are said to be 38 pages in length, so there will be a bit of delay as NCsoft goes through the translation process.
NCsoft has announced that public test servers for the North American and European versions of Aion will launch this Thursday, April 29th!
